Schools getting access security system

BURNABY, British Columbia, Jan. 11 (UPI) -- Access control systems from Viscount Systems of Canada are to be installed at an undisclosed number of schools in New Mexico.

Viscount Systems, a security solutions company, said its Freedom system and software will be installed at "at a series of K-12 schools" in New Mexico but offered no details.

The company, which aims to expand its footprint outside of Canada, announced earlier this week that it was installing access control system at a number of U.S. government facilities in two U.S. states.

"School districts everywhere are looking at creative ways to improve security but are also faced with budgetary limitations," said Viscount Chief Executive Officer Stephen Pineau.

"Since most school security upgrades are at existing facilities the cost of running proprietary wire networks and control panels is very daunting. Simply finding an available room to mount panels is problematic.

"However, most schools are heavily wired for IT so installing Freedom represents substantial savings since each Freedom Encryption bridge can use the existing network and the cost of dedicated control panels is eliminated."
